Kit Kat Santa Sleighs that are Simple to Make

It's a Pinterest Win with this easy to make Kit Kat Santa Candy Sleigh

Have you attempted something on Pinterest and had a Pinterest fail? Ha! Well this one I guarantee to be an epic win and have everyone ohhing and ahhing over them. I found this idea a few years back on Pinterest and made a couple tweaks of my own and now they are my go-to for giving each year. I usually make them for my daughter's class Christmas party and to add to wrapped gifts for the kids. Wanna give them a try, they are easy peasy with the simple steps below, seriously!

Below I have listed what I use and added the easy steps it takes to make these cute sleighs. I won't kid you though, if making quantities like I normally do (over 40) , they are a bit time consuming but they really are worth it in my opinion.

Here's a list of what you will need:

  1. Kit Kats (the single serving packages that have 4 bars)
  2. Hershey's Nugget Variety Bag
  3. Ribbon (narrow is better)
  4. Candy Canes (assorted colors/Flavors of choice)
  5. Hot Glue Gun/Sticks
  6. *Optional Name tags

Here's how to make the Sleighs:

It uses 1- Kit Kat, 7 Hersheys and 2 Candy Canes per Sleigh

  1. Take 1 Kit Kat Package and add a dab of hot glue to the bottoms of 4 chocolate squares 
  2. Add 2 more squares facing the opposite direction adding a dab of glue at the bottom
  3. Finally add the last piece to the top as shown
  4. Measure out a piece of ribbon to go over and under the sleigh and glue to bottom
  5. Cut another piece of ribbon and make a bow at the top. Add tag if desired.
  6. Add a line of hot glue to the candy canes and stick to bottom evenly spaced

I find it is best to get the Kit Kats and the bag of Hershey's at Costco as they sell them in the large box/bag, if you don't need so many target has them for a fair price. The Candy Canes I picked up at target,I liked the variety they had. Also I prefer ribbon over pre made bows, looks much prettier, don't you agree? I used narrow ribbon and when I ran out I just cut a wider one I had on hand in half.

Tips: I find it best to measure and then pre cut the ribbons. I also set out the piles of candy needed per sleigh to get the job done the fastest. If you are going to add name tags, pre print add a hole with a hole punch and address them ahead of time before attaching. Cute right? Happy crafting and Happy Holiday giving everyone!
